Vocational and Technical Education. Annual Report, Fiscal Year 1968.
Bureau of Adult, Vocational, and Technical Education (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC.
During fiscal year 1968, significant changes and improvements in vocational and technical education were reported across the nation. The continuing flow of federal funds and the greater program flexibility under the Vocational Education Act of 1963, together with increased state and local expenditures, made possible expansion of ongoing programs and development of some needed new programs. However, despite notable progress, there are many population groups and areas which vocational education is either not serving or not serving adequately. As manpower requirements and the vocational education needs of people continue to change rapidly, vocational education should be made more flexible, innovative, and relevant. Increased resources and effective leadership are urgently needed at the local, state, and federal levels to establish a comprehensive, responsive system of occupational education which will help provide adequate educational opportunity for all youths and adults in every community. Tables of data collected from the states are appended. (Author/JS)
